A good model is important in a BIM (Building Information Modeling) workflow, and equally important is generating a good set of construction documents, complete with detail drawings. After mastering basic modeling in Revit software, many users hit the wall and struggle with this vital aspect of project delivery. This hands-on lab will teach you how to bridge the gap between modeling and detailing, taking full advantage of the 3D model and adding 2D embellishments combined with display modification to create your construction details.
- Learn how to determine what to model and what not to model
- Learn how to modify detail view properties to facilitate effective communication of detail geometry
- Learn how to modify model geometry to make it usable for construction documents
- Learn how to use detail components, line work, and keynotes to finish out the detail
